The Debug menu in QuickBASIC 4.50 has Watch... features that are not available in the QuickBASIC Academic Edition Interpreter (QBI.EXE) Version 1.00. The Watch... features shown on the Academic Edition (QBI.EXE) 1.00 package are available in QuickBASIC 4.50, which is a more complete and powerful product. The QuickBASIC Academic Edition Interpreter (QBI.EXE) Version 1.00 doesn't have any of the following Debug menu features, but QuickBASIC (QB.EXE) Version 4.50 does have them: Add Watch... Instant Watch... Delete Watch... Where these menu items appear in the Debug menu on the package picture, QBI.EXE actually has Step and Procedure Step options. The Debug menu in QBI.EXE actually displays as follows: Step F8 Procedure Step F10 Trace On Toggle Breakpoint F9 Clear All Breakpoints Set Next Statement
